    I have seen that there are beverage produced in the main cities in Cambodia, ie Phnom Penh (Rice wine, palm wine and beer) Sihanoukville (beer) and Battambang (wine), but is there beverage that made in Siem Reap?
    A friend told me that there is something new but he cannot remember the name. Do you know it? Is it good?

    Products from palm (palm juice, palm wine and so on) I believe are local beverages. It is produced in Phnom Penh tho. There are also khmer mekong fruit juices which are also local made. Are your friends talking about Angkor Premium Beer? I saw that brand everywhere in Siem Reap.

    Angkor beer is everywhere in Siem Reap (and elsewhere in Cambodia), but I do not believe there are any breweries or such at Siem Reap. Lots of palm wine made locally, but I don't think it's done on a commercial scale.

    About wine at Battambang: yes, there is a winery out of town to the south-west, though I found the wine to be disappointing.

    M. Lionel, would you be referring to Sombai? You know, the nice infused rice wine liqueur you get as a free taster at Asana....?
